Delaware Acoustics DELAC S10 loudspeaker System Details

Sidebar 1: System Details

The review procedure followed, with minor changes, that established for my previous loudspeaker reviews: Each pair was used with a pair of VTL 100W Compact monoblocks, connected with Monster M1 speaker cable, while the preamplifier was a combination of the Mod Squad Line Drive Deluxe AGT and Vendetta Research SCP2 phono preamp. Source components consisted of a Marantz CD-94 CD player used to drive a Sony DAS-R1 D/A converter, a 1975-vintage Revox A77 to play my own 15ips master tapes, and a Linn Sondek/Ekos/Troika setup sitting on a Sound Organisation table to play LPs. Interconnect was Audioquest LiveWire Lapis.

The loudspeakers were carefully positioned for optimum performance, and both stands and floorstanding speakers were coupled to the tile floor beneath the rug with spikes. In addition to a rigorous listening test, with no other speakers in the room, The DELAC S10s were used for a period of everyday use.—John Atkinson

with similar colorations and similar stellar imaging attributes. I loved my TC-50s and regretted selling them. What they did well, they did REALLY well.
